The long and the short

Hey guys. I stopped blogging for many reasons over a year ago. I don’t know if anyone’s still following me, but I figured I want to record this anyway.

Anyway. Since then: I did a Femara 2.5 + follistim cycle October 2015 and then switched doctors and did Femara 7.5 + Follistim cycle in January 2017 (each ovary only had one follicle). And am now about to start IVF.

Here’s my schedule so far:

4/18 mock transfer — done

4/19 “nurse appointment” AKA, IVF get prescriptions/etc time

(4/20 – performance review at work)

4/25 Stop birth control (honestly the first month was horrific, the second cycle has been fine, no random crying or feelings of rage)

4/28 Baseline U/S

4/30 Stim day 1

5/4 Follow up U/S 1

5/6 Follow up U/S 2

5/8 Follow up U/S 3

5/9 Follow up U/S 4

(etc until trigger)

36 hours after trigger – Egg retrieval

We had considered doing PGS testing, but decided against it. I can do a long post as to why (cliff notes version: PGS seems to have a 1/3rd false positive rate, abnormal embryo have yielded normal babies, PGS normal embryo fail all the time, and it’d add a lot to the cost).

Ideally we’ll transfer two blasts at 5 days.
